We get this question a lot, “do I have to supply Hi-Res images if accepted into the program?” The answer is yes, providing hi-res images is a requirement. We realize that this is a big decision for artists to make. We want you to know that we take this responsibility very seriously. All hi-res images are uploaded to our encrypted, and secure, Amazon server. The infrastructure we have in place in our web portal is created so we cannot access these files until a sale is triggered in our system.
Having the hi-res files on hand ensures that we are able to go straight to production once a sale is made. Without those files, we would need to track down a number of artists for each project, and run the risk of files no longer being available, or not the correct size or format for what we need. This holds up the production process for our clients and other artists on the project. This can also lead to new images needing to be selected and missed opportunities. This was a big reason why we have taken on this responsibility. We realize this isn’t going to be an ideal situation for every artist, and we respect your decision. But we want you know we take the protection of your artwork extremely seriously.
